However “The Social Construction of Technology (SCOT)” is the title of an approach in the domain of Science and Technology Studies (STS), it has an important effect on the philosophy of technology. This approach that insists on the role of society in the construction of technologies, is based on the sociology of science and the social construction of it. T. J. Pinch and W. E. Bijker, two creators and defenders of SCOT’s approach, was tried to transform three conceptions, “relevant social groups”, “interpretative flexibility” and “closure” that was used in sociology of science, to sociology of technology. In this paper, we explain SCOT’s approach, critics on it and some of it’s defenders replies to these critics.
